WHAT IS “OBLIVION” ABOUT?
The movie is set in 2077, after a war between humanity and aliens called scavengers. The battle happened 60 years ago and the human beings triumphed. Nevertheless, the planet was almost destroyed and contaminated by radiation from nuclear weapons.
In this way, the story focuses on Jack Harper and Vika Olsen, a couple living on a space platform. Their daily job is to watch over the scavengers’ power generators. Jack is the one who patrols in an airship through the desert what the Earth has become. They also report everything to Sally, her superior at Tet, a space station.
Jack will radically change when the woman who appears to him in a dream ends up coming to reality. He finds her after an explosion where it is seen that there are a series of capsules with astronauts inside, who were killed by the drones that the protagonist also cares for and repairs.
The former NASA commander managed to prevent the murder of the last passenger, named JUlia Rusakova. From there the plot will begin to fill in some gaps in Jack’s mind, who has disjointed memories of his life before the war.
